Bad (Doctor) News, and Things Looking Up

It has been a somewhat rough week so far, but I am hoping things are going to get better.

As most folks who read this blog know, I've got a pretty bad wrist that has been getting slowly worse over the last three or four months now. I've spent a large chunk of time the last two days wearing a wrist brace on my right hand, and have been off the computer pretty much during that period (other than a bit of Tweeting) and doing the work for the office that has to be done. I am scheduled for an MRI of the wrist at end of August...at least I was.

The doctor called me at work yesterday, saying that I needed to come into the office right away as he needed to talk to me. So I took off from work around lunchtime, and went over there. He gave me the bad news that the MRI has been delayed another month, 'til the end of September. It just comes down to the fact that MRIs are in big demand, and my case is down at the bottom of the totem pole compared other. I got back to the office, angry and depressed. Angry that I'd had to go to the damn doctor's office to get that news, rather than him just telling me that over the phone. Depressed because the pain has gotten worse, and because it's not getting any better. I have no idea how I'm going to keep going with this, other than with painkillers and Goddess only knows what else.

In good news today, my copy of the new Pelgrane Press Mutant City Blues' game supplement, Hard Helix, arrived in my snail post today. Book looks really good, and I'm looking forward to reading it. (That and getting some work done on a few other roleplaying game projects in the pipeline.) And tomorrow, I have to take the day off work, as the new bed will arrive at the house sometime tomorrow. Sleeping should be interesting over the course of the weekend. Unfortunately, there's no one to break in the bed with me (if you catch my drift), sad but true. :)

Anyway, time to get off the computer and just relax. Try and let the wrist get as much rest as I can.
